Doug Williamson

Candidate for Wyong

Hi, I’m Doug Williamson.

I passionately believe we have a brilliant opportunity to transform Wyong into a renewables powerhouse, transitioning the current workforce and creating sustainable jobs for our young people. Together we can ensure that Wyong achieves this goal.

Living on the Coast in Wamberal for over a decade, I have consistently worked to achieve more sustainable government decisions for this region where governments of all stripes have largely ignored any resident’s voices.

I’ve dedicated my working life to giving a free, secular Public Education to all of our society; as a Teacher’s Federation rep, Association President and Councillor; spending the rest of my time as an Environmental Scientist / activist / volunteer.

NSW politics needs a shakeup. Both the major parties are putting the interests of their big and I mean huge corporate donors ahead of our community. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Together, we can:

1) Tackle climate change by rapidly transitioning to publicly owned community energy;

2) Ensure everyone has a home;

3) Provide world class free education from early childhood through to university and TAFE;

4) Fund world class Public schools, hospitals, Public transport and social services;

5) Protect our air and water from coal-fired power station pollution and ash dams.

I’ll represent our community’s views and values in parliament and hold the major party’s feet to the fire. Together we can create a fairer and cleaner future for us all.
